    Bloggings: Will Its Negative Views on Immigration Doom the Republican Party? By Roger Algase

    An April 4 Politico article reports that according to an ABC News/Washington Post poll released on Wednesday April 3, eight in ten Americans support increased "border security". Among Republicans, this number goes up to 93 per cent. However, among Latinos, only 61 percent agree. (Poll: Border security a top priority).

    These figures indicate that the Republicans are on the wrong side of a serious racial divide. Will they succeed in re-writing the results of last November's election? Or are they on the way to extinction as a political force, as America becomes more diverse?

    There are some encouraging results in the same poll, however. 72 percent of Americans support more visas for high skilled immigrants. 57 percent support a pathway to citizenship for unauthorized immigrants.

      Duh, this indicates that they are on the right side of popular opinion, even Latinos.

      However, surveys like this skirt the real issue, which is do the American people want a border that can be permanently secured, if it means absorbing Mexico as 10 new states and expanding the border to the seas?

      I think that both major parties will ultimately unite on this issue and work to get it behind us, turning a weakness into a strength with a bigger better happier 60-state U.S.
